In Boston, state Rep. Nick Collins was uncontested in Tuesday’s special election to succeed former Democratic state Sen. Linda Dorcena Forry, who left the Senate earlier this year for an executive position at Suffolk Construction.

Both Collins and Hawkins, who is a retired teacher, will have to run again in November to hold their new seats.
